President's Message

Welcome to the Sussex & District Chamber of Commerce’s official website.

As we continue down a path of many unknowns, we maintain a positive outlook for the vibrant business community we are surrounded by.  We are also continuing with the evolution of our growing organization. I would first like to thank you for your interest in our dynamic Sussex & District Chamber of Commerce.

We pride ourselves in being a promoter of business and facilitator of information for our business community.

By design we are always seeking improvement and growth. We see both of those activities as positive concepts that we will continue to embrace. You will see the Sussex & District Chamber of Commerce continually engaging its membership for local events.

We have built a well-respected board of directors of local business leaders whose primary directive is to keep abreast of how well the area’s businesses are performing. Utilizing this information makes us more relevant. Providing networking and building self-confidence is what we do best, as well as providing business lunch & learn sessions leading to increased business opportunities for locally owned businesses.

If you are a member, thank you for your investment into the Chamber. If you are not, consider joining! Your financial support keeps us doing our best work in helping local businesses grow. We urge you to join one of our committees, as smart and articulate business people are always an enhancement to our organization.

The Sussex & District Chamber of Commerce is here to lead the growth, development and the rise of strong business development throughout the region. Be a part of the excitement; so that you and your business can be a part of this economic surge for locally owned businesses!

We look forward to seeing you at one of our many Sussex & District Chamber of Commerce events.

I always welcome and encourage new ideas and suggestions.
